Congress Debating 2013 Federal Pay

Federal employees would not receive a pay increase under proposed legislation from the House, the Washington Post reports.

After crafting its bill last week, the House has officially denied the White House’s request to increase federal pay for fiscal 2013 by a half percent.

Federal pay rates are currently frozen at 2010 levels.

Under the House version, the financial services and general government spending bill will also be freestanding and a part of the budget outline, Eric Yoder reported.

According to Yoder, individual employees are still eligible for pay increases due to promotions, performance rewards and pay grade advances.

The Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to draft their version of the bill this week.

  1. Is the House and Senate getting an increase? A GS 9 with a Masters Degree makes a whopping 54K a year! This government will not retain the BEST or even the mediocre at the current pay rates. Only the Lazy and unmotivated will stay in the service of the people, for the people, and by the people. Is that what this administration wants?
